Learning from Tom Knisely is always a pleasure.
Very informative video. Tom Knisely is one of a few teachers who does not put me to sleep when he teaches a class. In fact, I always feel inspired after watching one of his videos. This one did not disappoint. Good info on warping the loom, although this is not for beginners, you need to know Tom's front to back method, because it is not shown in its entirety in this DVD. Sound and camera work are good. Review by Michele (Posted on 12/3/2016)
